In March this year, SAMARCH featured at the Family Science Fair at the Dorset Museum in Dorchester as part of British Science Week. Genoveva Esteban, Katie Thompson and students from Bournemouth University ran interactive activities on the life cycle of Atlantic salmon and showed participants how to determine the age of a fish! There was a fantastic turnout and involvement (interaction with >1,000 people!) from all visitors. If you want to know more or take part in next year’s event, please email Genoveva on firstname.lastname@example.org or Katie on email@example.com. Don’t forget to visit the SAMARCH website for more details on the EU Interreg project!

Wildlife conservation day seeks to spread awareness about persevering and protecting the natural world and its inhabitants
Today were are showcasing the fascinating Atlantic salmon. Atlantic salmon spend most of its life at sea, but makes an epic journey back to the river or stream they were born in.
Atlantic salmon feed on different species when they live in freshwater and when they are out at sea.
Try our colouring sheet and see if you can match the species with the drawing!
SAMARCH featured at the first ever Science Festival in Weymouth (Dorset, UK)! Genoveva Esteban and Katie Thompson from Bournemouth University ran an interactive activity on the life cycle of the Atlantic Salmon at the spectacular location: The Nothe Fort. They were delighted with the turnout and look forward to more face-to-face events to showcase SAMARCH. If you have any questions, please email Genoveva on email@example.com or Katie on firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dr Luciana Esteves will be at Cafe Scon Tuesday 2 November from 7.00pm until 8.30pm.
For an increasing number of people, coastal flooding and erosion are a real threat to property, the local economy and, in some cases, life. With the effects of climate change, this threat is quickly growing. Should coastal communities at risk be relocated before they are forced from their homes? Or could engineering and nature-based solutions provide the defences they need?
Join Café Scientifique to discover the challenges faced by coastal communities in an uncertain climate future, and what society could do to address them.
On the 3rd October, Genoveva Esteban and Katie Thompson from the Department of Life and Environmental Sciences and the Interreg EU-funded project SAMARCH (http://theceesresearchgroups.org/samarch) took part in the first ever Weymouth Family Science Festival. They ran three interactive activities at the spectacular location: The Nothe Fort. These included learning about insects, the wonderful life cycle of the Atlantic Salmon as well as the microbial world. They were delighted with the turnout and look forward to more face-to-face events. If you have any questions, please email Katie on email@example.com or Genoveva on firstname.lastname@example.org
